    The MRC still photography collection contains a variety of NASA-related images including astronaut training, crew portraits, and flight hardware; as well as a selection of photos from the launch, landing, and onboard phases of the flights. A limited selection of material from NASA's planetary probes, the Technology Utilization Program (spinoffs), and artist concepts of future programs also are available.

    The still photography collection is indexed numerically by mission. There is no printed catalog available which lists each photograph by index number or which provides a description of the individual frames.

    For domestic broadcast and publication purposes small selections of chosen subject matter may be provided at no charge.

    Domestic customers other than the news media can be provided with readily available digital images for free. Should the images required not be available for download in HiRes from the web, contact Jody Russell at (281) 483-2976 or via email at mary.j.russell-1@nasa.gov to see if a HiRes file is available.
